  • Gorgeous view of unbelievable scenery...breathtaking vistas usually seen in movies..so fabulous, the eye almost cannot take in entire view  more »
  • Passed by this scenic lookout on the way from Colorado Springs to Buena Vista, Not bad a view on a clear day. Nice vista view of the town from high ground.  more »
  • Fall colors and Sunrise made this spectacular. Stopped about ten times along Route 24 to enjoy the view even though I'd been thru here a dozen times. The fog hanging on Mt Princeton was cool.  more »

  • We stopped to use the restroom facilities and got a fantastic view too. It is pretty par for the course for the smaller rest stops in this area. Pit toilets, two are available; one is handicapped accessible but is further up the drive. There are signs about paying a fee, but it made no sense. We didn't pay and saw no others doing so either. For a 5-10 minute stop there should be no fee.
  • This is a great place to visit, with scenic views of the Collegiates. Not a whole lot here, unless you want to picnic or hike, but a great spot to take some quick pictures.
  • Made a quick pit stop. Excellent view of the rockies..
  • The most beautiful mountain view one could ever hope to see.
  • It was advertised like a regular scenic overlook from the highway. When you got there they just wanted your money and didn't have anything extra to offer. A total money trap. And not good for breastfeeding.
